We’re turning in for the night since tomorrow is the start of our big vacation. Oh yeah, we’re packing the family up (along with a surprising amount of stuff) and moving Five Browns over to Valencia, California for the week. Why Valencia? Well, Sandi’s Internet friends are all meeting there for a meatspace confab and [...]
Today just before nap, Madeline was crawling up the stairs in her usual fashion—happier than you could imagine—and saw me at the top. She started chanting, “Daw da da da da!” I was beaming! Finally, a little respect from the youngest. Speaking of which, the problem we mentioned earlier has become quite the hot topic [...]
Ms. Mimi Moo has been working on going down to one nap! She is such a champion baby. I remember with the other girls this transition was so traumatic. It took weeks to master. Perhaps it was because there were two. Perhaps it was just their personalities. I am betting on the latter. I have [...]
This is it! Next time she will be One Year Old. This has been the fastest 11 months of my life!! In those 11 months this baby has grown and matured into a fantastic baby. She is growing by leaps and bounds and can already do so many things. For the record for her I [...]
This is one of Annie’s new words. It is super cute and no she is not talking about Grammy and Papa. She says it whenever she is excited. It is so cute to see her delight in the little things in life. She is an amazing daughter.
Annie has really started calling me Bill almost exclusively. It’s driving me crazy. She’ll walk around looking for me by yelling out, “Biiiilllll, Billlll.” It’s something. I’ve tried the approach of “I like it when you call me Daddy” and I’ve tried “Annie, you have to call me Daddy” but nothing really works. She’s 2 [...]
I needed to go shopping to get Madeline some shoes. She has been starting to want to get down and walk places outside our home. I am afraid she would hurt her feet since she only wears socks. I received a coupon in the mail about a week ago, buy one get one half off. [...]
I am often criticized for my high standards. I think that they are the only way to live. I expect the most from myself and those around me. My family did not come to me easily. For them I fight to give them the best. They are my true loves. They deserve and require my [...]
Everyone says this is true, but I did not believe it. Well, here is a picture from tonight’s dinner table. Seems as though Mimi only had to wait 10+ months to get a taste of what Annie and Kimberly had to wait over 12 months for! In case you are wondering that is sloppy joe [...]
Grammy made Annie and Kimberly some tutus! They love to dance around in them. When they are done spinning they say “tada” and put one leg out! It is very cute. We have tried and tried again to explain that they can wear them over clothes and at the waist would be best, but they [...]
I would hope that Mimi would catch on, but it seems like most people think I am nutty. I have to admit iit is not easy to call her something different than I normally do. I think we will give it some time. See what happens. If it is meant to be then it will, [...]
For a long time I have been struggling with the fact that Madeline was destined to be named Madeline. We had a perfectly good name that Bill and I both adored when we went to the hospital to have her and name her. Problem is that from the moment we saw her she was not [...]
Today we went shopping with Grammy. Annie and Kimberly were having a ball inside Bath and Body works with her. She and Daddy were letting them put on lots of different lotions and potions. Then we went to Old Navy, nothing cute there to buy. We went to Ross and the Girls got to play [...]
Kimmie doing well just a runny nose. Annie doing well just a runny nose. Madeline no more stomach issues just a runny nose and cough. Daddy tummy ache. Mommy tummy not feeling great. Uh oh, they have worn us down!
Kimberly: I am all done. Mommy: Did you eat all your food? Kimberly: Yes, I eat all my yogurt! Mommy: Very little I think. Kimberly: Yes, I am very little! What a funny little girl.
Maddie woke up this morning in a good mood. When I was cleaning the kitchen she crawled over to me and puked all over the tile!!! My poor baby. She has since puked two more times!
It is getting so old. We reduced the house today in hopes that it will attract buyers. It is so hard to keep the house in show ready conditions with three toddlers running about. Annie and Kimberly can make the downstairs into a total disaster within 5 minutes if they try!!! Madeline is getting pretty [...]
Annie came down with the fever today. She is easily the most pathetic sick person. She is not too fussy but she gets the most pathetic looks on her face. My poor baby. Still praying that Maddie does not get this.
Madeline’s favorite food is chicken. She has developed such a taste for it since we introduced it recently. She is currently enjoying chicken salad on crackers for lunch. She is such a good eater. She has started eating mostly all table food. She is growing up so fast. Hard to believe that we are planning [...]
Since Grammy and others think we are not taking pics of the kids anymore I thought I would post some bath pics we have taken recently! Here are some pictures of fun bath time. Some good ones of Maddie hanging out outside the bath too.« Previous Entries
